The Discovery Boat Program provides a hands-on educational opportunity to join watershed biologist Rob Karner and assistant biologists Laura Weisen and Joe Blondia onboard a 22-foot pontoon boat cruise of Glen Lake.
Secrets of how and why Glen Lake is so unique and pristine will be revealed. Many say Glen Lake is one of the most beautiful inland lakes in the country, Discovery Boat Cruisers come away from their experience with a deeper appreciation as to why.
The curriculum varies each week and is tailored to the interests of the participants of each session. Topics range from discovering how the glaciers formed the lake and surrounding hillsides, wetlands, and streams, to the chemistry of the water, the biology of the plants and animals, the ecology of how all the parts work together and finally, community partners and political forces at work within our watershed. The life cycle of swimmer’s itch and prevention of it, are also covered.
Each cruise can acomodate up to 8 passengers. Participation is open to anyone 8 years old and up, children must be accompanied by an adult and provide their own Life Preserver.
